1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    I don't know a massive amount on the 98, i know that there's been a few guys on here who swap out the 98 barrel on there 95 for the added weight which equates to less muzzle kick. and well its Weihrauch so i doubt you'll be doing wrong with it. by the looks of it to me personally it looks pretty Ft based, although im sure it's not what it was primarly built for.

    i have a 98barel on my 95

    the 98s are basically a hw95 with a shrouded barrel and a stock designed towards target shooting, you won't have any trouble with one

    this may seem a bit stupid but does the shroud on the 98 barrel do anything about the noise or is it purely to decrease recoil?

    The shroud deadens the noise - but not to moderator levels, it reduces muzzle flip and gives the rifle a good balance.
    i've got a (long term loan) tuned one and it's as accurate as any PCP but Maybe not as easy to shoot with out practice though.
    a few us we playing down at War this morning and It's a superb.
    I've had a Vmach 95, an LGV and a tx in the last year - all faultless rifles but in my opinion the 98 is the best of the 4.

    I shot that 98 at WAR today and produced a group akin to what I get with my PCP's. Stunned at what I achieved with it, I would happily shoot a comp with it.

    Smithz, good luck the the Vmach kit - it made mine a lot more pleasant to shoot but still needed a bit of twiddling after I fitted it to get it right .

    Thanks mate, i must admit the idea of it being perfect as soon as that kit is fitted is nice but i got no doubt i'd have something to adjust or tinker with but thanks all the same fella.

    Awesome springer but like most HWs of late it probly will need stripping to check if the spring has been finished and possibly send the spring of to have a delrin spring guide made to fit it properly as they always do seem to be a loose fit and twangy.

    Or wait for a second hand one thats been tuned.

    I have an hw98 which was vmached by the rfd I never shot it standard.
    The power creeped upto 13fpe. I stripped it and took out the 3 washers its now doing 10.8 fpe its stunningly Accurate
    And highly recommended.
    I have a venom lazaglide hw95 which has an hw98 barrel again a very accurate Sweet shooting rifle.
    You can't go wrong with one.

    From my experience with 2 of them, I had one factory standard .177 and one sfs tuned, Rowan trigger and cs700 skeleton stock.
    Of the 2 I found the original easier to shoot and more pleasent to use. I think the cs stock was too big and rigid, as well as the pistol grip being too sloped and far back. But of course this may differ with different users.
    Hw95's are nice too and feel good to handle, but as standard with the silenced version, the spring twang is more likely to be more noticeable...

    Thanks
    Tom

    Welsh Willy does them tuned with one of his kits fitted for about £65-70 on top of the normal price for the rifle. Considering his kits alone are normally about £55-60, that's quite a good deal.

    He did that to my 95 and fitted a 98 barrel at the same time. If you can't collect, you do have to take into account RFD delivery, which added on about £40 in total, £15 to send £25 to receive.

    If you have a HW95 a heavy silencer works really well mines 240grams which is a fair bit of weight on th end of the barrel, i find that works great also makes the gun super easier to cock i can cock mine with my little finger.
    How much does WW charge just to have a top hat and spring guide made to fit your existing spring?

    Got a new HW98 a few weeks back. Very accurate but does twang a bit. Will put a few more tins through it before I decide whether to have it tuned or not.
    Its in .177 and shoots best with JSB4.52 and Weihrauchs own FTT pellet. The adjustable butt pad and cheek piece are good and helps to make the rifle fit better.

    I like the stock, very rugged feel to it and the cheekpiece is a nice touch. Other than that it's an HW95 with a fat barrel :D
